A conviction for a juvenile crime can send a child down the wrong path, and forever change their life. Redwood City criminal defense lawyer Jeffrey B. Hayden is a criminal law specialist with over 15 years of experience – and is committed to protecting juveniles charged with crimes.

We represent clients in all California juvenile delinquency matters, including criminal charges involving:

• Graffiti / Vandalism
• Assault
• Petty Theft
• Auto Theft
• Grand Theft
• Drug Abuse
• Alcohol-Related Charges
• Gang Violence
• Curfew Violations
• Disorderly Conduct
• Weapons Charges
• Drug Charges

Juveniles have many of the same rights as adults, but not all. As a juvenile, your rights include:

• Right to remain silent, and not to answer questions posed by the police
• Right to have an attorney present during questioning
• Right to have a parent present, but only if you ask
• Right to privacy in your room and closed containers, like your tool box in the garage or your makeup kit in the bathroom

The police cannot enter your room or search your closed containers – even if your parents say it’s OK.

As a juvenile, you do not have the right to bail. It is up to the judge to either hold you or release you, no questions asked.

If you have been charged with a crime as a juvenile – you have the same right to fight the charges as does any adult. Don’t go down with out a fight. Your future may be on the line. We will do everything we can to protect your rights and interests – and to get the best possible results for you and your future.
